As much fun travelling via fiction is, sometimes all you need is to sit back and take the time to enjoy a drink, a piece of cake and chat with the people on the journey with you. Authors act as travel guides of a sort and so we love to chat to them to talk about their setting, characters and inspiration.

So sit back, relax and enjoy with a cuppa and a cake of course!
